The Cheviot from Langleeford

Event date:
2nd June 2019
Hawsen Burn, Wooler

This circular walk climbs to the 815m (2674ft) summit of The Cheviot, the highest hill in Northumberland.

From the start point at Langleeford, we follow the Harthope Burn to ascend to Cairn Hill while passing the Harthope Linn waterfall on the way. At Cairn Hill we pick up The Pennine Way to the summit where in the right conditions you can enjoy views to The North Sea, Lake District Fells, Cross Fell and the Lammermuir Hills.

If time and conditions allow we might fit in an extra leg to visit the crash site of a B17 Flying Fortress bomber, which came down in December 1944. We complete the route by descending to the start point via Scald Hill.
